Resilience and the Art of Happiness – Finding resource within the circumstances of our lives

Sat, May 29, 2021

9:30 AM – 5:00 PM 

As human beings our lives include joy and difficulty. Given the changing nature of experience, what kind of happiness is possible for us? Can we discover sources of wellbeing and resilience that are available to us regardless of current circumstances? On this day retreat we will develop insight into how these wholesome states arise, and how they can be nourished.

The day will include guided and silent practice, teachings and time for questions.

All levels of meditation experience are welcome

The day will be held in silence.
